Even if you don’t watch police drama Bosch, you know Titus Welliver – he’s been in metaphorically everything. From The Man in Black in Lost to The Good Wife’s Glenn Childs to Silas Adams in Deadwood, his roles might often be brief, but they’re always impactful.

In Bosch, Welliver has found a lead character that’s custom-made for him. He’s brilliant as the taciturn, committed titular detective and recently took time out of shooting the crime series’ fourth season to talk to The Playlist’s Nick Bhasin.

In addition to the dark turn his character takes in season three, Welliver also discussed...

  • How season three steps up the life or death stakes that Bosch faces.
  • The deaths of close family members - and how he stopped mining those emotions for his performances
  • Being "dismayed and flabbergasted and horrified and mortified" by Donald Trumps presidency. 
  • The prospects of his appearing in the new Batman movie...
